Computer locks up shortly after startup

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've been having issues with my PC locking up after startup, no matter what I do, it still persists. It initially occured when I tried to play a video from the yahoo news site, and the browser (opera 9) locked up I tried to end the process, but then the entire system froze and started with a constant system tone. I had to shut the PC down manually, and when I started the system back up, it wouldn't log into windows (XP Pro), and oly gave me a black screen after POST. After trying a few times, I finally was able to log back into windows, but the etherenet connection said the drivers were not installed, and when I tried to open a couple different applications, they all just locked up and I had to manually shut the system down. The problem still persists. When I turn the computer on, within 10 minutes or so, the system locks up and forces a manual shutdown. Avast won't run a boot time scan, and most of the time, it won't run even on the desktop. I was able to get it to scan the C:/Windows directory for which it found nothing. I was able to download MBAM and HijackThis on my laptop and transfer them to my desktop. I've pasted both log files to this post:
